The power of nutritional healing with Chinese medicine

Nutritional healing with food has been part of human life for time immemorial. Ellen wrote “In Chinese culture it is known that, “Food heals and medicine is food.” Food and medicine are one in the same in everyday life.” (from the book Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine, p. 9) In every ancient culture our ancestors understood how to eat with the seasons; how to heal with food; how to soothe a sore throat, how to build vitality and ease digestive distress. This maxim is being revived today as more physicians embrace the healing power of food to prevent and reverse many common chronic illnesses.

Ellen Goldsmith, L.Ac., wrote the book Nutritional Healing with Chinese Medicine: + 175 Recipes for Optimal Health  to bring this wisdom into our lives and into our kitchens. Here she visits with Helen Raptis on AMNW, on Portland’s KATU station to introduce the healing power of spring foods.

Ellen adds in a surprise digestive tonic wine to the mix and informs you of the activating benefits of flavor in common foods.
